From a piece by Robert Scheer: In a Washington Post interview, Wilson added, "It really comes down to the administration misrepresenting the facts on an issue that was a fundamental justification for going to war. It begs the question: What else are they lying about?" Those are the carefully chosen words of a 23-year career diplomat who, as the top U.S. official in Baghdad in 1990, was praised by former President Bush for his role as the last American to confront Saddam face-to-face after the dictator invaded Kuwait. In a cable to Baghdad, the President told Wilson: "What you are doing day in and day out under the most trying conditions is truly inspiring. Keep fighting the good fight." As Wilson observed wryly, "I guess he didn't realize that one of these days I would carry that fight against his son's administration."
